Patchwork started on the runway with Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2010 and slowly made it’s way into the mass market. Celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie and Kristin Cavallari have all been seen wearing the trend, in a variety of different ways. One of the great things about it is that you can find a pair of jeans with all over patches and a bohemian vibe, or a few subtle patches for a more vintage look.
Textile Elizabeth and James Stevie Jean. The wider leg and contrast pockets and patches make for a trendy and bohemian jean. Celebrities like Kate Hudson and Kristin Cavallari are fans. They’re available for purchase at Bloomingdales.com for $98.00.
Jet Jeans Drip ‘N Patch Skinny jeans and Patchwork Skinny jeans ( both seen on Nicole Richie) both offer a more subtle take on the patchwork trend, the Drip ‘N Patch style only has one patch and the Patchwork Skinny has multiple same-tone patches. You can buy these jeans at Singer22.com and Boutiquetoyou.com.

It is nice to see a couple of new celebrities wear JET Jeans. I am such a fan of the brand and glad to see that more are also fans themselves.
Mary J. Blige was spotted leaving The Ivy in London back in November. She was wearing a pair of the JET Blue Acid washed jeans. These were a favorite among the celebs. Ashley Tisdale, Nicky Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, The Kardashians, Christina Aguilera and Ashlee Simpson, even Nicole Richie during her pregnancy was spotted in these jeans. Huhh…I think it would have been quicker to just say the “JET Posse.” I wonder what Mary has been up to? I do really like her music. I grew up listening to it and always thought it was great.

Be sure to check out Nicole currently gracing the cover of the January issue of Lucky Magazine! There is an article about her favorite things and she even mentions Alexander McQueen scarves as the most perfect accessories ever. She says that her jewelry from House of Harlow is inspired by the best vintage items she has found.
Nicole Richie was spotted leaving Izaka-Ya Restuarant in West Hollywood, California after having lunch with Solange Knowles. She was wearing a pair that she doesn’t get spotted in to often, her JET jeans in Gray. I like Nicole’s look here. I like that she added a pop of color with her Winter Kate cardigan and a unique touch with her milkmaid braid.
Nicole seems like such a fun mom. When photos came out of her star studded birthday party for her daughter, it just made me think of one of The Simple Life’s episode. The one where she was giving milk-shots to the children. I know it sounds horrible, but it was entertaining to watch and the kids seem like they were having tons of fun.
